After breakfast leave for the city tour of Jaisalmer. Visit the Gadsisar Lake a water conservation tank made around 1400 A.D. by the then maharaja of Jaisalmer, Maharwal Gadsi Singh. This structure just outside the city walls once acted as a reservoir that controlled the entire supply of water to the arid city. Thera are whole varieties of temples and shrines surrounding the lake. Visit the famous Havelis (mansions) known for their frescoes. Jaisalmer\'s strategic position on the camel terrain route bought it great wealth. The merchants grew prosperous and commissioned great havelis, or mansions, to flaunt their ever-growing status in society. Made of local golden-yellow sand stone and wood, some of the havelis are still in excellent condition. The most elaborate and magnificent of all the Jaisalmer havelis is the Patwaon Ki Haveli. Five Jain brothers built the Haveli between 1800 and 1860. Salim Singh Ki Haveli and Nathmal Ki Haveli are the other two havelis that are opened to visitors. Built in 1156 by the Bhatti ruler, Jaisal, THE FORT here stands atop the 80 m high Trikuta hill. 3 walls and features 99 bastions surround the fort. Over the centuries, the golden sand stone fortress witnessed many battles between the Bhatti Rajput\'s, the Mughals and the Rathore\'s of Jodhpur. Within the fort complex lie the beautifully carved Jain Temples built between the 12th and 15th centuries. The Maharawals (rulers) of Jaisalmer were devout Hindus but were tolerant of Jainism, and encouraged art and religion. There are 7 temples in the complex - Chandraprabhu, Parasnath, Shitalnath, Sambhavnath, Shantinath, Kunthunath and Rikhabdev Temple. The temples are all connected by a series of corridors and walkways. Close by is the Gyan Bhandar, a library founded in 1500 A.D. This house is priceless ancient manuscripts and other exhibits like astrological charts, besides the Jain equivalent of the Christian Shroud of Turin. Later visit the Bada Bagh, 6 km north of Jaisalmer, is a fertile oasis with mango trees and a huge old dam. Above the gardens are royal Chhatris (memorials) with finely carved ceilings and equestrian statues of former rulers. Amar Sagar, 5 km northwest, was once a formal garden with a pleasure palace of Amar Singh on the banks of a lake which dries up in the summer. Nearby is a beautifully carved Jain temple. Lodhurva, 15 km northwest of Jaisalmer, was the ancient capital before the move to Jaisalmer. It contains some very beautifully carved Jain temples which are worth a visit. Also visit the abandoned and cursed village Kuldhara, 15 Km. west of Jaisalmer a city in western Rajasthan lies the ruins of a village which was called Kuldhara. The first sight of Kuldhara village, more a town actually, sends one imagination running to the time it may have been inhabited and a well-planned settlement of 84 villages of Paliwal Brahmins a prosperous community. But one night in 1825 all the people in Kuldhara vanished in dark. In the evening, proceed for the excursion to Sam Sand dunes. Located at a distance of 42 kilometers from Jaisalmer, Sam Sand Dunes is the closest point to witness the total sandy desert.

This structure just outside the city walls once acted as a reservoir that controlled the entire supply of water to the arid city. Thera are whole varieties of temples and shrines surrounding the lake. Visit the famous Havelis (mansions) known for their frescoes. Jaisalmer\'s strategic position on the camel terrain route bought it great wealth. The merchants grew prosperous and commissioned great havelis, or mansions, to flaunt their ever-growing status in society. Made of local golden-yellow sand stone and wood, some of the havelis are still in excellent condition. The most elaborate and magnificent of all the Jaisalmer havelis is the Patwaon Ki Haveli. Five Jain brothers built the Haveli between 1800 and 1860. Salim Singh Ki Haveli and Nathmal Ki Haveli are the other two havelis that are opened to visitors. Built in 1156 by the Bhatti ruler, Jaisal, THE FORT here stands atop the 80 m high Trikuta hill. 3 walls and features 99 bastions surround the fort. Over the centuries, the golden sand stone fortress witnessed many battles between the Bhatti Rajput\'s, the Mughals and the Rathore\'s of Jodhpur. Within the fort complex lie the beautifully carved Jain Temples built between the 12th and 15th centuries. The Maharawals (rulers) of Jaisalmer were devout Hindus but were tolerant of Jainism, and encouraged art and religion. There are 7 temples in the complex - Chandraprabhu, Parasnath, Shitalnath, Sambhavnath, Shantinath, Kunthunath and Rikhabdev Temple. The temples are all connected by a series of corridors and walkways. Close by is the Gyan Bhandar, a library founded in 1500 A.D. This house is priceless ancient manuscripts and other exhibits like astrological charts, besides the Jain equivalent of the Christian Shroud of Turin. Later visit the Bada Bagh, 6 km north of Jaisalmer, is a fertile oasis with mango trees and a huge old dam. Above the gardens are royal Chhatris (memorials) with finely carved ceilings and equestrian statues of former rulers. Amar Sagar, 5 km northwest, was once a formal garden with a pleasure palace of Amar Singh on the banks of a lake which dries up in the summer. Nearby is a beautifully carved Jain temple. Lodhurva, 15 km northwest of Jaisalmer, was the ancient capital before the move to Jaisalmer. It contains some very beautifully carved Jain temples which are worth a visit. Also visit the abandoned and cursed village Kuldhara, 15 Km. west of Jaisalmer a city in western Rajasthan lies the ruins of a village which was called Kuldhara. The first sight of Kuldhara village, more a town actually, sends one imagination running to the time it may have been inhabited and a well-planned settlement of 84 villages of Paliwal Brahmins a prosperous community. But one night in 1825 all the people in Kuldhara vanished in dark. In the evening, proceed for the excursion to Sam Sand dunes. Located at a distance of 42 kilometers from Jaisalmer, Sam Sand Dunes is the closest point to witness the total sandy desert.
